Dermalogica Daily Cleansing Shampoo and Daily Conditioning Rinse

I try to avoid washing my hair more than twice a week. It’s one bit of my beauty routine that I hate. My hair is long and takes forever to dry, even with a nifty drier. I find the whole rigmarole of washing and drying a total faff!

Then there’s the health of my hair. Will washing it frequently be stripping? Or if the shampoo is on the gentle side, will it have enough ‘oomph’ to actually clean my hair?

But there are times when frequent washing is a must, like when I’m sweating it out in the gym more than usual. Then my mucky mop is just too much for dry shampoo to cope with and only a proper wash will do. I’ve had a few of those occasions recently, prompting me to give this daily shampoo and conditioning duo from Dermalogica a try.

The shampoo

It’s sulphate-free and described as non-stripping, with a robust, foaming lather.  It contains a heap of oils including argan, avocado, coconut, grapefruit, lavender and geranium.

Oh the smell of this. It’s zesty citrus. It’s fresh and invigorating. It smells of ‘clean’. I give a high five to its lathering  prowess too - it does that with minimum effort.

The Conditioner 

It’s described as a moisture-rich formula with nourishing ingredients including Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), grapefruit, lavender and geranium.  The zesty citrus fragrance is also dominant here and the texture is thicker and more gloopy than the shampoo (as you would expect).

Both the shampoo and conditioner are formulated without artificial fragrances, colours or parabens.

Final thoughts

This duo ticks a lot boxes, both in and out of the shower. Fundamentally though it leaves hair feeling clean and soft, with extra body and bounce (a bit like my new gym routines!).

A 250ml bottle of the shampoo costs £19.80 here and 50ml of the conditioner £11.90 here.

  1. Sdince I've started working out I have needed to wash my hair more and have been looking for a gentle shampoo and conditioner! This sounds perfect! I also like the fact that it smells clean and fresh! I think I'm going to add to my wish list, thank you for sharing xx

    1. no worries and yes the scent here is fresh, fresh, fresh. Tx

  2. This looks great - I struggle with shampoos and conditioners. The over scented / chemically ones really irritate my scalp. I will give these a go - thanks!

    1. An irritated scalp can be difficult to manage. I hope you enjoy these Tom. Tx

  3. Hi, dear Tracey! I wash my hair every other day, so it means, at least 4 times a week. But because I try to be "brave", cause up to the last year I washed it everyday. It takes really an eternity to dry, even with a drier. I liked this Dermalogica suggestion, sulphate free seems to be a good thing! And the citrus scent, I really love this kind of scent! Tracey, I am sorry if I bothered with stupid news, but please don't worry - I am fine :) Hope you have a very lovely day and enjoying the gym! Hugs!

    1. No worries Denise. I just sent you an email. Sorry I've taken a while to reply - lots going on! So relieved to hear you are fine now :). I was worried :). Returning to your hair, it is stunning. Shiny and lush, and a stunning colour. I'm not surprised it takes an age to dry either as it's soooo thick! Lucky girl! Tx

  4. I love this stuff and use it most days. The only problem is that it's pricey, so I have banned the rest of the family from using it (mean mummy alert).
